Fraser Lake by-election candidate: Garry Watson

Fraser Lake by-election candidate for councillor: Garry Watson

Garry Watson

My wife and I have lived in Fraser Lake since 1972, when I became the first resident telephone installer/repairman. Subsequently, we were in business in Fraser Lake for about ten years followed by two years of driving logging truck. I went to Endako mine in 1989 and spent the next twenty five years there, ten years of which I spent as pit foreman. I’m retired now and after attending council meetings for the past year, I have decided to run for the vacant councillor position. As well as having management and supervisory experience, I was also part of the team that acquired funding and did the prep work for the paving of our airport. I support our current council and expect we will continue to see good things from their efforts and I look forward to helping in that endeavour.

Electors can vote from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Village’s office on Nov. 28.
